Author Visit - Helen Stephens

We are extremely lucky to be visited by award winning author Helen Stephens on Tuesday 13th September.  Helen is best known for her picture books 'How to Hide a Lion', 'How to Hide a Lion from Grandma', 'Fleabag', 'The Night Iceberg', and 'Gracie Grabbit and the Tiger'. Helen’s new book 'How to Hide a Lion at School' is due to be published October 2016. 'How to Hide a Lion' was nominated for The Kate Greenaway Medal and The Redhouse Book Awards. It is being adapted for the stage at The Polka Theatre, where it will be shown from October 2016 until Feb 2017.  She has also illustrated for other authors including Roger McGough, Sophie Hannah, Michael Morpurgo and Holly Web. 

 

A very big “Thank you” to Jo Rooks (Ruby and Xavi's mum) and Michelle Thomason (Sydney and Stanley’s Mum) for nominating Hillcross for this via Helen’s Instagram Launch Tour.

 Whilst in school Helen will worked with the children  in years 1,2, 3 & 4 .  She did some live drawing and read from her new book ‘How to Hide a Lion at School’,
